Entering a pivotal year in the Army’s energetic transformation effort, Army Chief of Staff Gen. James McConville is balancing the needs of a force that is very busy today with an urgent push to prepare for a future, more lethal battlefield.
This fall, the Army will unveil its new Multi-Domain Operations doctrine, and over the next 12 months, it plans to field or produce prototypes for 24 of its signature modernization programs. Together, these milestones could usher in significant changes to the way the Army trains and fights.
At the same time, the Army remains in high demand, with soldiers responding to the crisis in Europe, deploying to Iraq and Syria, conducting exercises and partner-building activities in the Indo-Pacific and Africa, deterring conflict in the Middle East and supporting disaster-relief and COVID-19 efforts at home.
